Because of frail health and a declining immune system, many elderly residents are more susceptible to infections; for example, urinary tract infections or respiratory infections such as colds or pneumonia. Infection control practices as simple as hand washing can help prevent the spread of illnesses such as these. A disease or infection acquired by a resident may result in discomfort, pain, or even death. If you are exposed to germs at the facility, you could also become ill, and in some cases, you could spread that illness to your family and friends. Focusing specifically on two basic but very important infection control practices — hand washing and glove usage — this program describes the "Chain of Infection" and discusses ways in which disease can be spread. It demonstrates how to perform routine handwashing, explains when to wash hands, and discusses when to use gloves.
